The Ministry of Youth and Orange Jordan signed a joint cooperation agreement on Thursday, under which the company will equip three halls in youth centers affiliated to the ministry in the northern, central and southern regions, which include: Kafranja Center for Women in Ajloun, Young Arda Women Center in Balqa and Aqaba Youth Center. The agreement was signed by the Minister of Youth, His Excellency Makram Al-Qaisi and Orange Jordan’s CEO, Thierry Marigny.

Al-Qaisi said that the ministry has included in its action plan a study about the present situation of youth centers and its rehabilitation, whereby signing the agreement will result in the rehabilitation of three youth centers distributed across three regions, through equipping its halls digitally, to suit the aspirations of young people, in addition to offering training to the youth trainees, whom are considered a main link with them, as he valued the partnership with Orange Jordan and the role it plays in supporting Jordanian youth.

From his side, Marigny affirmed that this agreement is in line with the objectives of the company’s five-year corporate strategy “Essentials 2020”, which focuses on increasing awareness on technology usage and benefiting from the availability of a strong internet, through the company’s network, which is considered to be the best. Additionally, it serves the company’s commitment in contributing to reducing the digital gap in the local community through providing modern learning methods based on digital education.

Regarding the role of Orange Jordan in this agreement, Marigny explained that under this agreement, which falls under Orange Jordan’s digital centers umbrella, the company will train the trainers who are responsible for helping young people gain new skills in three main topics: communication, digital, leadership and entrepreneurship skills. The company will also provide integrated telecommunications solutions to support training and the rehabilitation of the halls, in order to create a suitable training environment.

He added that supporting these youth centers, that support young people throughout the Kingdom, will develop their knowledge and increase their competencies, which will enable them to deal with the latest developments and challenges efficiently and effectively.
